I was diagnosed with 3 ischemic strokes in March 2020.

These strokes were caused because of a hole in my heart that allowed the clots to enter my brain causing 90% cognitive and 10% damage to the fine motor skills in my dominant hand, we reference this as a “invisible” stroke because there is no physical deficits you will notice looking at me. The PFO was corrected with surgery in 2021.


I’m also the author of Embracing 2.0 in 2022. 


My main goal is to help as many Canadians as possible to receive the information and resources they need to manage their stoke journey successfully.
